It’s a new month, what’s in your pen cup?

What is old is New again.

Let’s start the new year off with an old friend, we’ll sort of. I’m inking up the Waterman Lauret I, which is new to me in 2021 but is 30 years old. By old friend, I mean this pen feels just like the Waterman Hemisphere in hand. If you recall, the Hemisphere is the pen that got me started down this rat hole. Also, I adding a little excitement and opened the Papier Plume ink Cafe Diabolique which I picked up on Fountain Pen Day.

Papier Plume‘s special FPD ink: Cafe Diabolique which was blended to be an exact match for Cafe Brulot, a trance-inducing after-dinner coffee ritual which is still being performed by a few old-school waiters skilled in the flaming at-table ritual.

What did Santa bring you?


I'm a loser as my wife likes to tell me, I enjoy researching dead cousins and playing with fountain pens.

      1. Ha! Tuition is actually due soon, and as they’re starting in person on the 30th…out of abundance of caution, I told my daughter I’m not paying tuition till then…out of abundance of caution…😆

  1. I’ve been trying to whittle down my actual pens in rotation, so right now my main pen is the Pilot 912 FA nib. I don’t know why, but I’ve been getting flustered whenever there are too many pens inked. Except my beater TWSBI Go though. That’s constantly inked with Baystate Blue. Just because.
